Justin Trudeau’s Economy Means Fewer Jobs for Canadians and Skyrocketing Inflation

NOVEMBER 5, 2021

OTTAWA, ON – The Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, released the following statement on the release of a new report by Statistics Canada showing that Justin Trudeau missed the job numbers estimate:

“Today’s report by Statistics Canada makes it clear that Justin Trudeau is failing to create jobs, our economy is shrinking, and inflation is running at an 18-year high of 4.4 per cent.

“In Justin Trudeau’s economy, bad job growth and skyrocketing inflation means that not only is the Canadian economy not growing, but the cost of everyday essentials such as gas, groceries, and housing are going up. This devastating formula of poor job growth, a shrinking economy, and skyrocketing inflation is bad news for Canadians looking to secure their future.

“Despite refusing to bring back Parliament and engage in debate with Opposition parties, Canada’s Conservatives have provided advice directly to the Prime Minister to tackle the serious economic challenges and cost of living crisis facing our country. It should come as no surprise given his lack of insight into monetary policy that he has failed to respond.

“Unlike the Trudeau government, Canada’s Conservatives are ready to get back to work, stand up for the middle class, and tackle the economic challenges that Canadians elected Parliament to handle.”
